Does DPM 2010 support Microsoft Office Sharepoint Portal Server 2003? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! Is it possible to backup Microsoft Office Sharepoint Portal Server 2003 installed on Windows Server 2003 SP2 via DPM 2010?

    I've installed a DPM agent on the server but when I try to run

    ConfigureSharePoint.exe –EnableSharePointProtection, it shows "No Sharepoint installation has been detected on the local machine"

    I cannot also select Sharepoint resource in the "Create Protection Group" wizard..

  • Hi Igor,

    Verify that you meet Protected computer Software prerequisite :


    Log into your SharePoint FE server with your Farm Administrator account, then run the command.

  • I've tried to install updates mentioned and Farm Administrator account. Didn't help.

    Under Protected computer Software prerequisite : WSS2.0 and Microsoft Office Sharepoint Portal Server 2003 are not even mentioned, so suppose they are not supported...

    Thank you anyway!

  • I can't get an answer in SCCDM mailing list, so I'll bump this thread.

    The whitepaper "How to protect SharePoint with DPM 2010" states:
    Microsoft created DPM 2010 to leverage fully supported Microsoft technologies in order to provide continuous data protection specifically for Windows Server hosts running SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010 products and technologies.

    This support includes:

    •         Online backup of SharePoint content databases and configuration.
    •         Recovery of SharePoint sites, document libraries, lists and documents to either the original server location or an alternate SharePoint farm.
    •         Recovery of SharePoint content stored on SharePoint 2010 farms without requiring the use of a recovery farm.
    Looks like it should work. But, according to DPM 2007, 2010 protected computer software prerequisites and a real life practice - it doesn't. Am I right in assuming that this whitepaper contains an error?

  • Finally, I've got an answer:

    Sharepoint 2003 is not supported. If the whitepaper says so, it is an error.
